Intel has announced another purchase. The largest manufacturer of semiconductor products, stalled in the development of the next stage of technological standards and losing ground in the processor market, acquired Rivet Networks.
This company is known for wired and wireless network adapters of the Killer family, focused on use in gaming PCs. According to Intel, now Wi-Fi connection is becoming more important and widespread. In modern homes, there are an average of 11 devices with Wi-Fi support, and over the past few months, the use of Wi-Fi connections for video communications has grown several times. Allegedly, Intel has been developing Wi-Fi connectivity for more than 20 years and Rivet Networks assets will be a “great addition” to Intel’s own offer in this market.
